Health and Safety

Your health and safety is our top priority, and BSPH will follow all university and local COVID-19 guidelines.

All attendees must either show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or perform a negative rapid test on-campus daily.


To show proof of full vaccination:

Upon arrival and before checking in, attendees with proof of vaccination will show their vaccination card. 
Valid forms of documentation include:  

  • An original CDC Vaccination Card  
  • A digital photograph or photo copy of CDC Vaccination Card (one side)  
  • State or Country verification app showing proof of vaccination  


To be considered fully vaccinated, attendees must meet the below requirements:  

At least 2 weeks have passed after their second dose in a two-dose vaccination series, such as Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, OR 2 weeks have passed after their single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson/Jansen.  If more than 6 months have passed since the second dose of a two-dose series OR more than 2 months have passed since the single-dose vaccine, they must have received a booster shot.  



Attendees will receive wristbands that must be worn at all times while on campus. Attendees who show proof of vaccination only need to check in one time during the weekend.  


Daily Rapid Tests: 

If you do not have proof of vaccination in your possession (including guests under 5 years old):  

  • Attendees who do not have proof of vaccination in their possession must test daily.  
  • Attendees who test negative will be issued a wristband daily.
  • Attendees who test positive will be asked to leave campus immediately.


Masks and Other Policies:  

Masks are optional indoors if you are vaccinated and boosted. 

However, masks will be required for alumni and guests attending lecture-style events. Masks will be optional for presenters at lectures if they are able to maintain a 6-foot distance from others in the room. 

We encourage our guests to continue masking if that makes them more comfortable or if they have particular circumstances that influence their personal level of risk. 


Programming is subject to change as pandemic conditions evolve.
